been done before. >> ronald reagan. >> now you're jack kennedy. >> ronald reagan. >> twitter was atwitter about that. that comment got a noticeable reaction from the group of undecided voters i watched during the debate last night. see it blown up there in the bottom of the screen. here is the problem, both kennedy and reagan working in a different time and place. to start, when both kennedy and reagan took office, individual tax rates not even in the ballpark of what we have now. kennedy's plan, enacted after his death, took the top marginal tax rate from 91% to 71% over a two-year period. lots of loopholes, but the growth argument, gdp rose by barely a percent during that time. isn't much when the economy was growing at a rate like china's, but the u.s. was at the time. they got a boost, but not much of one. ronald reagan's first big tax cut went into effect, and the economy did surge. economic growth went from 4.9% to north of 8%. year three, not so impressive. look at quarters, there were some drops. for perspective, today, the top marge call tax rate is 30%, not

to win is this was the most-watched debate since 1980 when ronald reagan ran against carter and there was only one debate that year. >> fox news is pulling out all the stops. check out the electoral p prediction map fox trotted out today. look at the red states. they gave mitt romney solid democratic states like new mexico and pennsylvania. really? polls should be a snapshot of the current state of the race and there's no doubt mitt romney is benefitting from his debate performance last week. but over "the new york times," the forecast shows president obama still holds a 70% chance of winning the election. the percentage is back in line with the state of the race before the political conventions. president obama made some gains after the dnc. mitt romney erase d those gains in the debate. so the race is back to where it was in august. eight years ago today, cnn poll after the first presidential poll put john kerry on top of george bush by one percentage point. the race is close. this should surprise no one in america. every vote is going to count. there's been bipartisan agr

-- >> reagan. >> oh, now, you're jack kennedy. >> ronald reagan. >> twitter was all a twitter about that. the line generated 275 tweets a minute. kind of crazy. there's a noticeable reaction from the group of virginia undecided voters that i watched during the debate. you can see it blown up there at the bottom of the screen. but here's the problem. both kennedy and reagan were working in a different time and place, so to start with, when both kennedy and reagan took office, individual tax rates were not even in the ballpark of what we're dealing with now. they make france like like a low tax regime. kennedy's plan took the rate to 70% over a two-year period. lots of loopholes, but the growth argument, gdp rose during that time, but wasn't much when the economy was growing at a rate like china's, so they got a boost, but not much. as for reagan, his first big tax cut went into effect in 1981 and reduced the rate to 50%. over the first two years, the economy did surge. that's impressive. year three though, not so impressive. today, the top marginal tax rate is at 30%. not like you're at 7

that in the 1980s under a republican president, ronald reagan and a democratic president bill clinton. >> and gdp was 4.8%. 4.5% in one case. 4.3%. i can find economists who will tell me we'll have that kind of growth rate. >> we should aspire to 12 million jobs. i should aspire to look like brad pitt. that won't happen either. thank you for coming on the show. coming up something bocandidate on. >> if somebody gets an advanced degree i would staple that diploma to their green card. >> as soon as they get an advanced degree we send them home to create jobs somewhere else. >> immigrant entrepreneurs could be a powerful force but u.s. policy is standing in the way. here to here. this bigger screen goes from here to here. now that's either a) an amazing coincidence .. or b) a dazzling display of common sense. pretty sure it's the common sense thing. have more fiber than other leading brands. they're the better way to enjoy your fiber. >>> friday's jobs numbers underscore something we knew. we need more jobs. how do you create them. one answer may surprise you. immigration. how does bringing more peo

and democratic chairman and assistant to president ronald reagan, deputy assistant to the president at the white house, served on the white house chief of staff . talk about debate negotiations. how do you negotiate the debates? what are the terms that you're looking at? guest: this has become much more sophisticated over the years. when we negotiated the 1984 debates, the entire agreement was encompassed in three pages and now they go on for pages and pages. take into consideration every single requirement as far as lighting and staging and how you're going to address both candidates. do you call him mr. president or m r. obama. the color of the set all of those sorts of things. it's become a lot more complicated over the years. now, the commission on presidential debates, who i think do a very good job, they get heavily involved now too. they're involved in the process. host: what do you think lot was made of the moderator from the first debate, jim lehrer. how he moderated the debate? the commission came out with a statement days after said he did what he asked him to do. these were the gr

was trying to get the point across that he can lead the way ronald reagan led, and that is with america in front and not from behind. >> well said. well said, senator. >> i'm wondering, senator, whether we start to see some shift in sentiment, this has been a strong suit for the president i guess after the death or killing of osama bin laden, most people thought that maybe governor romney should stick with domestic issues. you think this is a fertile field for making some gains? >> oh, i think so, and if you'll indulge me for a second this libya debacle where five days after what was clearly an al qaeda affiliated terrorist attack, they send out our u.n. ambassador to tell everybody, on all major news shows that this was a spoon stainio iospontaneo demonstration bred by a hateful video. you don't have spontaneous demonstrations with mortars and rocket-propelled grenades. look, iraq, because we didn't leave a residual force behind, al qaeda's back and iranians are exerting their influence. in afghanistan because the president overruled his military advisers time after time we're seeing t

, much wider. >> i remember ronald regan was quite positive about immigration. he was quite pro hispanic. he gave amnesty the 3 million. >> yes. republicans were doing great. as you know, reagan used to say that latinos are republicans, they just don't know it. >> well, he did say that. he did say you have common values in regard to the family, to religion. >> abortion. >> abortion. issues on that. >> gay marriage. they're very conservative. that's basically what changed everything. i remember reading an article where president bush was asked what was one of his biggest regrets. he said, not passing immigration reform. as a republican and having a republican congress he could not convince his own party to support immigration reform. we focus only on the undocumented immigrants. i think that that's -- that that's what's happening, that when people perceive latinos, first thing that pops into their mind is immigrants and undocumented immigrants or like they say illegal aliens which is a term we don't like to use. they don't realize that 74% are americans, are citizens either by birth or na
